About the Conference

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its possible resurgence in the Fall, we regret to inform you that after 45 years of continuing service, the Pennsylvania Coalition for Parent Involvement, Ltd. has decided to postpone its 46th annual Family Involvement Conference.

The conference has been postponed until October 10-13, 2021
Please check back often!

The Family Involvement Conference is presented to you by the Pennsylvania Coalition for Parent Involvement Ltd. This National Conference is based upon the premise that active family involvement in the education process is the key to effective schools and student achievement. Its goal is to bring together, in a common forum, school administrators, teachers, community members, and parents, to interact and address issues that are vital to academic success and the well being of our children. This includes afterschool and out-of-school-time programs, special needs children and early childhood education. Join with colleagues and parents to share ideas about how to make this partnership a reality in your school.
